What is Herd?

Herd is a blazing fast, native Laravel and PHP development environment for Windows. It provides everything that you need to get started with Laravel development. It ships with PHP, nginx, and Node.js.

Herd Pro provides local service management for databases, caches, and it adds additional testing and debugging capabilities that you'll find exceptionally useful when working on web applications every day.

After installing Herd, it routes all requests to *.test domains to the correct sites on your local machine, and allows you to use composer, the Laravel installer, and Expose directly in your terminal.
